He could read at a college reading level in just second grade, but when it came to math he just couldn 't wrap his head around it.

Each day Bruno and his sister have to study or work on school with Herr Liszt. He made Bruno read history books, but he doesn't like to read about history books. He wants to read about exploring book because that's what he likes to read. “I wonder whether there are any spare tyres around,’ Bruno continued. ‘From one of the jeeps perhaps.
In his youth, there seemed to have been an attempt for him to delve into literature, yet for the reading he was focused on varied from encyclopedia’s, philosophy, and historical events. However, these forms of literature that lacked the significant aspect of practical knowledge an adult would give. The modes of knowledge James obtained was intelligence rather wisdom. Yet throughout James’ life, he was constantly unable to delve in to any readings. Which is problematic given his father abandoned him, and his mother died when he was fifteen.

I thought this essay was going to be one of the hardest essays I would have to write in this class because I ever really understood the rhetorical analysis triangle. I always had trouble figuring out the difference between logos, ethos, and pathos. In high school, my teacher made the rhetorical analysis triangle really difficult to understand so when I had to start writing this essay I was really nervous that I would have trouble using the rhetorical analysis triangle. Throughout this essay, I had to put in a lot of research in each part of the triangle so I was able to understand the triangle and be able to write a good essay.
Getting all A’s and B’s means having motivation without motivation college becomes a strong for example getting up every morning to go to class or even have the energy to finish your homework soon depletes and in time is becoming a struggle and also barrier get overcome.

Waking up every morning becomes tiring feeling sluggish because all you want to do is sleep and eat let’s be honest no one wants to come to class at 8 to here a professor lecture on things I may or may not remember. As painful as that is I know if I stick it out and do what is told in that class I will be successful.
Jacob Chowanec has always had a mind of his own. sometimes it would just walk away in the middle of class and he wouldn 't find it until nearly the end of the day. that 's when he remembered that he learned nothing from those days and was very much screwed when the next test or quiz came along.

Lastly, Huck didn’t put up with anyone telling him what to do, especially pap. Pap was racist and abusive, and Huck fought back even though he knew he’d be beat. Pap was furious that Huck was going to school and learning to write, on account of nobody else in the family being able to, saying: “You’re educated, too, they say; can read and write. You think you’re better’n your father, now, don’t you, because he can’t?
I read books late into the night, until I could barely keep my eyes open… I loved those books, but I also knew that love had only one purpose. I was trying to save my life.” Being like Sherman Alexie meant he was neither accepted as a smart non-Indian boy, nor was he accepted as a dumb Indian boy. He was lost in the shadows, to never be welcomed into either group. Which in his case was a good thing, there in the shadows he had even more time to gain intelligence, he could read and increase his likelihood of forcing open the cement door that stood in his way.
